Where Europe & Asia beautifully meet

Istanbul is supremely exotic, warmly welcoming, and quite unique—after all, where else can you tour Europe and Asia on the very same afternoon?

Must sees include Haghia Sophia, decorated in 30 million tiny mosaic tiles, the greatest church in Christendom for 1,000 years, then a mosque and now a museum; and Topkapi, palace of sultans, complete with harem quarters.

And of course shopping in the Grand Bazaar, a medieval version of a mall, for unusual gifts to take home, stopping along the way in a café for a cup of Turkish coffee or mint tea.
